NEW YORK (1010 WINS)  They’re cute, they’re cuddly, and they’re ready for their close up!  Nearly two dozen kittens from Animal Care & Control of New York City will be featured in today’s “Kitty Halftime Show” as part of the 8th Annual Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet.

According to Animal Care & Control Executive Director Julie Bank, the New York City kittens got their big break on national television because of their “stellar personalities and natural acting abilities”, but they’re also bringing attention to the fact that AC&C rescues nearly 34,000 animals each year and there are plenty more in need of loving homes.  In fact, the kitten halftime show was taped a while ago, and Bank says all of these cats have been adopted.  To find out more about adding a cat, dog or rabbit to your family, visit
